Celebrate farmers on Ag Day
AGFORCE is encouraging all Queenslanders to show their support for farmers and join in the celebrations for National AgDay on November 21.
AgForce General President Grant Maudsley said agriculture was a cornerstone of the Queensland economy and a vital contributor to society, underpinning tens of thousands of jobs in regional communities and thousands more in our cities.
“National AgDay provides an opportunity for all Queenslanders to celebrate and be proud about our contribution to feeding and clothing the world,” he said.
Mr Maudsley encouraged Queensland farmers and all those involved with agriculture to come together and celebrate their industry and way of life.
“On AgDay there are many ways you can mark the role of farming and the contribution it makes to the economic and social fabric of our state and our nation,” he said.
“Host a lunch with all-Aussie produce making up the menu, fire up a community barbecue and raise money for a good cause or simply share a picture of fabulous food and fibre on social media.”
